The city of Walker and Leech Lake Area Chamber of Commerce welcome the Walter family to Acorn Hill Resort on Leech Lake. After several years of searching, the father and son team of Kyle and Jeff Walter found the perfect resort for their family’s future. Moving from Elgin, Ill., are Kyle, his wife Rebekah and their young son Jackson; Kyle’s father and mother, Jeff and Mary; sister, Shannon; and grandfather George. As is true for most area resort owners, Leech Lake has been in their blood as they have been vacationing in the area for the past 25 years. It was their dream to own one of the many great resorts on Leech Lake. Kyle was busy on opening day of fishing this year, helping customers get out on the water. For the past 18 years Acorn Hill Resort has been owned and operated by the Doug Fure family. The family was proud to turn over the keys to this Leech Lake resort with upgraded classic cabins, newly remodeled modern cabins, indoor swimming pool and a seasonal RV park with room to grow, coupled with an impressive fleet of rental boats and pontoons. After making the tough decision to sell, the Fures contacted Minnesota Resort Sales. The Walter family had been working with the firm when they reviewed the Acorn Hill portfolio. Dan Houle put the deal together and the rest is history. The Walters are sending out a meet and greet invitation to the area families and businesses. “We are excited to be part of the community and welcome everyone to come out and have a look at our new Leech Lake resort!” Acorn Hill Resort offers 14 comfortable cabins, 22 seasonal RV sites, seven daily camp and RV sites, and both boat and pontoon rentals. Along with great fishing, Acorn Hill Resort guests enjoy many amenities — indoor pool, hot tub, sandy beach, 30-foot water slide, playground, game room and much more.
